Thinkpad T42 – IBM’s Security Minded Laptop

Monday, November 22, 2004

Forget cable locks folks, IBM india has devised a new finger reader for select Thinkpad T42 models, that could well be the future of laptop security.

“…..The first biometric ThinkPad combines a fingerprint reader with an Embedded Security Subsystem, providing a layer of security that is built in, not bolted on….”

The ThinkPad T42 is barely 1 inch thick and weighs around 2.2 Kgs. With the nine cell extended battery option this notebook can operate for upwards of seven and a half hours…..Impressive!
